Lump on back that seems to be cause of pain
I have this lump on my upper back that I've had for a few years now. I've had dull upper back pain on and off with it as well. Today I'm having the upper back and neck pain, but it's worse.
It's more burning and stinging now and I'm having neck pain, shoulder pain, and numbness and tingling in my arm. I'm a female age 25. The lump even looks inflamed because it's bigger and red. What could possible be wrong with me?
It's possible, Emily, that there are two different conditions involved. It's unlikely that lump would cause numbness and tingling in your arm.
But you must start with that red, inflamed lump. I would assume it's a medical problem, so your GP would be the best port of call.
Ask him or her if it could also be causing the numbness in your arm.
Then, start to take note of exactly which part of your arm is numb and tingly. And what provokes the tingling.
Do our upper limb tension test and tell the doctor if it's positive.
There really are a host of possibilities. Don't leave it any longer; you really need in the first place the correct diagnosis, and that you're not going to get off the internet.
I hope this contributes.
